In the last minute run-up to what has been a spirited week-long campaign, candidates competing for the position of Mercer’s next student body president and vice-president will go head-to-head tonight in a debate beginning at 8 p.m. in the Bear Rock Cafe at the University Center.

Juniors Stephen Bradshaw and Jordan Locke, who are both vying for the spot of SGA president in tomorrow’s election, will take center stage for the night with their respective running-mates, Melissa Thompson and Ike Ekeke. Current SGA president Trenton White and vice-president Shannon Giddens will moderate the debate, and Cluster co-editor-in-chief Liz Bibb will field questions to the candidates.

The Cluster will provide minute-by-minute updates of the debate here.
